Based on the limited experience of babies, there is basically not much The content can be dreaming.

People's work and rest are regular, and so are babies. After 1-2 months of birth, babies generally have the distinction of day and night in eating and sleeping. Mothers should consciously make the baby's life regular, eat when it is time to eat, sleep when it is time to sleep, and play when it is time to play.
Generally speaking, babies under 3 years old can sleep for 1-2 hours each morning and afternoon.

In the hot summer, it is difficult for both adults and children to fall asleep without turning on the air conditioner, but keeping the air conditioner on for sleep is afraid that the baby will catch cold, and blowing on the air conditioner day and night is not good for the baby. At this time, you can consider the good brother of the air conditioner-the fan.

Shop: If the baby is still a small baby, do not let the baby sleep directly on the mat. You can spread items such as sheets or towels on the mat to prevent the skin from getting cold or rubbing your legs. The best way is to sew a layer of bed sheet on the mat, which not only absorbs sweat, but also cushions the hardness and coolness of the mat, and the bed sheet is sewn on the mat safely and will not cover the baby when he sleeps. Mouth and nose. Of course, children should not sleep on mats when they are sick. In addition, the sleeping mat should be checked for smoothness and no thorns to prevent burrs from scratching the baby's skin. After the child wets the bed, scrub and dry the mat in time to keep the mat clean and dry.
Cover: Towels are preferred. Remember not to take your child naked to sleep because of the heat.

Cold stimulation below body temperature can cause it to contract and cause smooth muscle spasm, especially The abdominal wall around the navel is the weak spot of the entire abdomen. It is more likely to catch cold and link the small intestine, causing paroxysmal pain in the abdomen, mainly around the navel, and diarrhea.
